Escalation Planning

Carer Escalation Plans (in development)

Carers will have an escalation plan – that they keep themselves – to help them plan for urgent need in relation to predictable changes in the condition(s) of their cared-for person.

The escalation plan will be developed with the cared-for person and the services s/he uses.

It will be a record of what to do in the event of likely developments in the condition(s) of the cared-for person – for example the development of additional needs in progressive illnesses, falls in the case of a frail person, or a mental health crisis.

We are working with commissioners and statutory Health and Social Care agencies to design and pilot the escalation plan so that it is available widely later in the year.
